Lily and I found these oak leaves that look like wings attached to a stucco wall — beautiful and unlikely!
I looked out the window of the family office room as I was preparing for the new school year and saw something “right viewish.” I went out the door to see it more closely and encountered this beautiful sight on the way.
And this is what I found at the gate after I walked the pavers strewn with more blossoms: more blossoms in a cobweb. I love the rusty iron, the corrugated iron, and the hinge in the image, too.

I was helping to clean up the yard to prepare for the Student Day when I found this. Surprise, surprise. Wonder what will come out.
